Checking into de la Portee, just after Novotel Brussels made us sad, initially. But as it transpired later that 26 million tourists visit Paris every year, we realized that THIS is Paris !! The bus no. 42 from Gare du Nord takes you to Michel Bizot & the hotel is just across the road.The friendly staff & the excellent location made us forget that you need to jump into the bed from the door & hop into the shower from the bed ! Presto & you are on the bed in one hop from the shower cubicle. The location was five star & the helpful staff showed us the details of the Metro lines. The hotel is in the eastern part of Paris & at nite while having our dinner at the Mac, at about 12 o'clock on both Friday & Saturday, there were lots of police & police dogs not only at the platform but on the roads as well. The lovely French bakery is just opposite to the hotel & even if you have breakfast at the hotel, try it out...it will never disappoint you. The Sunday market in front of the bakery makes it all the more interesting. Well into the nite when everything's' very quiet, you will hear the underground train rushing past, we heard it from Room 19. The 2 cookies on the first day was inviting, but a tea/coffee maker would have delighted us. The wifi provided free to us in the room had good connectivity. As the Metro stn was about 15 steps from the hotel, we never felt unsafe even in the middle of the nite while returning from the Lido Show. Overall, the experience was good & given a chance, will stay there again.
